On the occasion of its 150th anniversary, The University of Evansville adopted the theme of Civic Mission...Sacred Trust. These four words are rich in tradition and reflect our long-standing relationship with the United Methodist Church. They express our heritage, communicate who we are today, and pave the way for our future. Throughout our 158-year history, we have helped shape caring, service-oriented citizens who not only do things right, but know the right things to do. This is our charge...our goal...our Civic Mission.
The University is also committed to active learning and scholarship in a student centered environment. Honoring the values on which we were founded, the University is committed to providing a professional education with a liberal arts and sciences core while preparing women and men for lives of personal and professional service and leadership. Students, parents and the community trust us to provide a meaningful and challenging educational experience. It is our Sacred Trust, and we honor it every day.
"Thank you for your continued interest in the University of Evansville." - President Thomas A. Kazee
